Dan Raviv, the CBS News correspondent who is co-author of Spies Against Armageddon: Inside Israel’s Secret Wars (and the previous best seller, Every Spy a Prince, both written with Yossi Melman) — was a guest for one hour on Shalom TV, which is seen on many cable systems across the U.S.
In a wide-ranging interview with Rabbi Mark Golub, the founder of the Shalom TV channel, Dan Raviv analyzes the goals of Israel’s intelligence community, a range of reactions to the Jonathan Pollard affair, and a lot more.
Rabbi Golub wondered, for instance, if Israel’s security-related activities ever put American Jews in an uncomfortable situation — caught between divided loyalties, perhaps. Raviv and Golub have a vigorous discussion on that and many other points.
[Dan confesses to sharp-eyed readers and viewers that, in the interview, he mistakenly refers to the small airport near Tel Aviv as “Sde Boker” when he meant to say “Sde Dov.”]
